Re: Tips for the getting this #*&% stuff off?

minaret,

Don't really want an argument with you as I respect you to much.

That being said, when I purchased my boat over 12 years ago, 8, 10 inch opening ports were glued shut with 5200, anti-bond wasn't available then. I use my recipe I created enough to fill a 5 gallon bucket to just cover the port light, let each one soak for about 4 hrs. The 5200 debonded from the chrome and glass and just pulled off in strips.

2 weeks ago I was down at my boat preparing to restore 2 chrome over bronze deck hatches. Someone had also used 5200 to glue in replacement plexiglass. I didn't have any of my concoction at the dock. So I went across the Street to West Marine, got a 1,5 ounce bottle of the AntiBond at $17.50 plus tax. I worked for a 4 hours getting no where fast.

So I loaded up the hatches back to the shop and used my recipe. Had both hatches cleaned and glass out ready for the chrome shop, in 3 hrs.

Nice to have it in an aerosol can too, really helps to spray it into cracks. You can waste your time making lame imitations, or just shell out a little for a product a major company had scientists who know what they are doing design. If it takes me half an hour to fart around making my own, I have to bill over $50 for that. Much cheaper to order up. Time is money.



PS-Don't see any denatured as you claimed in there. Sure you've ever even used the stuff?

I read a lot of opinions from people who don't like the idea of composting. Squeamish, silly, shallow people. Probably shouldn't be on a boat to begin with. Well, whether you like that idea or not, I am pretty sure that if you ever get hands-on involved in removing an ancient holding tank from an older boat, you will get to the point where you never want to share your living space with one of these setups again. I still shudder. I will spare you the details. The horror.........the horror....
Ah yes, wait for the flies...just wait, they will come...

Sorry I meant to add this link for your reading pleasure

Dipropylene glycol methyl ether acetate



I'm no chemist...but I might qualify as a back yard chemist.

..Descending like the plague on your boat out of nowhere offshore..absolutely!!

But due to a composting toilet...suppose it's possible, but sterile coir, peat moss or whatever; screen off the vent; ensure proper separation of fluids and solids. Bam. Never heard of that being a real problem for composters.
